Hi all,

I just uploaded 0.8.1 and pyreadline 1.4.3 to the usual location:


The branch should be considered closed (we rarely backport fixes), and
there's a tag as well for reference.

For IPython, this is mostly a bugfix release, but a few new features
did manage to squeeze in:

 * Physical constants module available with the physics profile,
contributed by Gael Varoquaux.

 * Improved 'import completer' by Olivier Lauzanne.

 * New functions in ipapi: defmacro and defalias, to more conveniently
create macros and aliases.

 * A few other small things and bugfixes.  Full details in the ChangeLog:


I'll leave it to Jorgen to provide us with more details on the
PyReadline work, since I just don't know that codebase at all.

Thanks to all who contributed, and as usual, please let us know of any problems.
